New York Foodies in Orlando for Disney Marathon
We are extreme New York Foodies in for Disney Marathon, staying in Orlando/Kissammee area for 7 days, with a car.

Last year, Bob Mervine was kind enough to answer my post and gave some great suggestions. His lost is deeply felt, I know, by all foodies. I am hoping that some kind souls in Orlando will help us.

Would appreciate any suggestions and greatly appreciate recommendations for:

1/ garlic crabs, seafood
2/ vietnamese
3/ carribean
4/ barbecue ;
somehow last year, I found a bbq place not far from the airport, which had a few outside tables and am trying to locate that place again (as I recall, pulled pork was one of their specialties);
also appreciate suggestions for bbq beef rib places.
5/ soul food
6/ authentic "floridian" food- you know, seafood shacks, etc. ; stuff you can't get in NY.
7/ good pasta place for carb-loading pre-marathon
8/ good steakhouse for post-marathon
9/ cuban
10/ spanish (could be argentinean, etc)
11/ other ethnic
12/ some good places not far from airport as we will be picking up/dropping people at airport on many days.

Need not be fancy - just excellent food.

Would also appreciate menu suggestions at each recommendation (as we all know, sometimes it depends on WHAT you order) , and suggestions as to other things to do in area near restaurant . Much appreciated!
